Visiting UK

Hi!

 

My wife and I will be visiting the UK, London and Wales to be specific, for 2 weeks in August. My wife has a Samsung Galaxy s6. We want to buy a pay-as-you -go SIM card for her use while visiting. My questions are:

 

  1. Can we orded the SIM and have it shipped to us in the US?
  2. Is there anything we need to do with her phone to make certain it will work with an EE or Orange SIM card?
  3. Does it matter if we choose an Orange or an EE SIM card?

Thanks!

 

Michael
